Sold STC - Jointon Road, Folkestone, CT20 - £875,000

Front, Jointon Road, Folkestone, CT20

DESCRIPTION
A rare opportunity to acquire this handsome double fronted detached house which is being offered for sale for the first time in thirty four years. The property, which occupies a generous plot of approximately half of an acre in Folkestone's desirable West End, has been well maintained and improved by the current owner who has undertaken various works including replacement of the roof, repointing and replacement gutters, facias and soffits most recently.

The accommodation, which totals in the region of 2845 sq ft, is very well proportioned and enjoys many original features from the 1930's when the house was built. There is an impressive entrance hall leading to the sitting room, dining room, study and kitchen/breakfast room. From the kitchen there is a utility and store room and from the breakfast room doors open to a beautiful conservatory. From the first floor galleried landing there are five bedrooms, all of a good size, and two bathrooms.

The house has a wide frontage to Jointon Road from where two pairs of gates open to the carriage driveway where there is parking for numerous vehicles and access to the garage. The garden extends to the side of the house leading to the rear garden which is a delight. One is barely aware of any neighbouring properties with an exceptional level of privacy being provided by many mature shrubs and trees. Steps lead down away from the house to a pathway breaking the wide expanse of lawn and leading to a 'secret garden' screened by a mature hedge at the far end.

For room sizes please refer to the floorplan.
